Tasting Notes

"On the nose this smells like, well, bourbon. Oak, char smoke, and vanilla. Those familiar with Beam will recognize the taste, albeit in a slightly burlier fashion. There's big char and oak, sweet caramel corn, even a hint of orange peel bitterness, all playing very well with one another. Black pepper and chocolate sneak in during the warm, lingering finish. This is an exceptionally enjoyable classic bourbon. "
